Ohio's unemployment rate is at its lowest in almost 17 years.

Zeller said job growth this year hasn't been enough to offset 2017's dismal employment data. This sector has declined 300 jobs or 1.3 percent since February 2017.

By design, the nation's jobs report offers more detailed information than that of OH and most states.

"We have maintained a wage and salary employment count of over two million for eleven months in a row now", said Labor Secretary Fitzgerald Washington.

"Across the entire north central region the numbers are quite low making it rather hard for employers to find people to hire", Lezcano said. If those people come back into the labor force, the rate could rise if job growth is not sufficient to accommodate those people. "Nonfarm employers added 11,500 positions compared with the prior month". Solana Beach had the lowest at 1.4 percent.
